"The Paris metro!" Paris Transportation Tip by ladyolac

Paris Transportation: 1,526 reviews and 1,581 photos

The best way to get around Paris is the METRO (stands for Metropolitain but no one calls it that anymore). They have special passes for tourists which allow you to travel on the Metro or Buses anywhere is Paris. You have to ask at any of the desks in the entrance of any of the metros. Don't be put off by the unhelpful attitude of the desk clerk, if you happen to land on a grumpy non talkative one! The bus and Metro are really the best way to get around and are very safe compared to other countries. It closes around 1 am so later than that take a Taxi.
